Instructor: Dr. Angela Melchiorre, Right to Education Project's Adviser

This certificate course offered jointly by HREA and the Right to Education Project provides human rights, development and education advocates with concepts, skills, and tools to deepen their knowledge and strategise their work on the right to education. The course will look at the theoretical foundations of the right to education, how to apply them in order to identify stakeholders, obligations and violations, and what strategies may be used to promote andrealise the right. The course will apply a human rights advocacy methodology whereby participants learn to work at the level of: substance (being aware of the content and meaning of the right in order to identify violations); structure (identifying duty-bearers and using legal instruments so to encourage accountability); society (identifying actions and behavioural/value changes in order to enhance participation of rights-holders).

Participants will deepen their knowledge by learning about international, regional and national standards related to the right to education; what they mean in practical terms (making education available, accessible, acceptable and adaptable); how they apply to different stakeholders. Participants will also gain skills and knowledge in identifying obligations for states, the international community and non-state actors; recognising violations of the right to education.
